We Are The Black Makers!

Be who you want to be. Follow your heart and don’t let anyone else tell you that you can’t chase your dreams. This blog is all about showcasing the awesome black folks who are Makers. As I travel around the USA, I am collecting stories of the kids and adults from the inner city to rural farms who are part of a long tradition of black Makers that represent a diversity of interests, talents, backgrounds, skills, geographic regions, hopes, dreams, desires, and goals. Share your story with me!

I’m Kipp Bradford. I teach engineering at Brown University. I’m also the founder and president of open-source hardware manufacturer kippkitts. I’m on the Technical Advisory Board of Make Magazine. My goal in life is to Make Makers. Why? That’s a great question. I believe that people who are Makers see the world’s problems as opportunities to create a new innovation. Makers are the engines of our economy and sources of inspiration forSTEAM education. Am I succeeding? Well, that’s hard to tell. There is certainly a lot more work to be done. Progress is being made though, and the movement is gaining momentum in schools and businesses. So I will continue to Make Makers and showcase some of the incredible Makers that I’ve come across in my life!
